Run Oracle Forms 11g

Hi,

I have Web Logic Server,  Forms/Reports 11g all installed on my PC with XP.
I created a hello.fmb and generated hello.fmx on my c:\temp

How to run this form?
    What services need to be started 1st?
    What URL to use ?
    Can I run the form in developer without browser?

Thanks,
Luchuan

Hi,


There are two ways to run it

1- edit ORACLE_HOME/forms/server/formsweb.cfg file and create an entry for your forms at the end of file, for example "test" then you'll call your forms


http://YourServerName:7777/forms/frmservlet?config=test

2- call the form directly

http://YourServerName:7777/forms/frmservlet?form=c:\temp\hello.fmx

Hi sonicefu,

I was able to get login screen using the 2nd way. But after In entered login information, I got a kind of blank web page. There is no error message. The following is from Java console, it stoped at loading help.gif. Is this memory related (I am running this on my PC with 2 GB)? Why the form didn't load after login?

Thanks,

Luchuanr

Yes, you can run the form without borwser. If you are trying to run from LAN (network)

1.Share or install 6i component on workstation
OR
2. if you are running locally then (both cases)

C:\Oracle6i\BIN\ifdbg60.EXE module=C:\temo\hello debug_messages=NO

Note: its based on oracle 6i, so you might have different folder name then ORACLE6i

hey luchuanc:

missed one line....

-----first create a short cut of you hellp.fmb on your desktop then right click go to property put the line in target C:\Oracle6i\BIN\ifdbg60.EXE module=C:\temo\hello debug_messages=NO

I have logon to weblogic server - We have oracle 11g installes, users  complaining system throwing them away after a very short period of time.
In oracle WLS within forms and advances  - Network retries set to Zero  - Any idea what does that mean?

Thanks in advance
